Quote of the Day - Alcohol may pick you up a little bit, but it sure lets you down in a hurry. - Betty Ford

Can You Get Wine from Here to There?

Shipping wine between states is unnecessarily complicated. There's a mish-mash of conflicting state laws about what wines can be shipped from who to where. It's a nightmare.

You're better off sending a gift certificate.

On Friday, a New York upheld another ban on shipping wine from New York. Add to this complicated mess the fact that a federal agency taxes exported wines.

According to the Volcano Winery (no, I'm not kidding) in Hawaii, they can ship to "reciprocal states." Just in case you wanted some lava wine.

Click here, and look below the chart for an in-depth background of the whole issue.

My head hurts trying to sort through this mess of laws. I think I'll have a drink.
